The Centre for Law and Policy Research (CLPR) is excited to announce the 7th edition of ConQuest: India’s Premiere National Quiz on the Indian Constitution, History and Politics.
Since its first edition in 2016, ConQuest has grown to become the largest quiz and educational activity that celebrates India’s constitutional history and politics. Last year, we successfully organized the sixth edition of ConQuest following a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was heartening to witness the continued enthusiastic engagement of students from across India with ConQuest and India’s constitutional heritage, which motivates us to continue providing this unique platform for students to engage with the Constitution. This year, the theme for ConQuest is Artificial Intelligence and its intersection with constitutional matters and related technologies
ConQuest encourages undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines including natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, humanities, and law to engage with the Indian Constitution, law, politics, history and current affairs. These include bachelor’s and master’s students. M.Phil and PhD students are not allowed to participate, but are welcome as audience members for their respective regional rounds and/or the National final round.
This year, the Quiz will be held in October and November. We begin with regional rounds in Kolkata, Pune, Delhi and Bengaluru in collaboration with our regional partners. The National Finals will be held in Bengaluru in late November.
